Rebuild Joplin receives $150,000 donation


Rebuild Joplin received $150,000 from the Missouri Conference of the United Methodist Church on Wednesday.

The money will be used as a challenge grant.  Rebuild Joplin will work to raise an equivalent amount of money from other sources, doubling the impact.

Since January Rebuild Joplin has completed 12 projects, with another 58 scheduled in the coming year.

"It is so easy to forget that there are folks still living in someone's living room, on couch, a basement, or somewhere that is not home - it is important they find a place to get back home to," says donor Aaron Brown.

Wednesday's check presentation was done at the site of a current Rebuild Joplin project, a home being built for a family of seven.
